D & N 2

D & N 2 is the full length debut from the collaboration between Nevada Hill and David Lee Price of North Texas improv/drone collective Zanzibar Snails that continues to define and redefine the concept of Home. The follow-up to the well-received (9/10 from Foxy Digitalis) D & N 3-inch from 2007 on Mayyrh that was recorded (natch) at each members’ home.

As for the D & N 2CDr, the process of recording an album outside in the middle of Nowhere, Texas is described by the screen-printed text on the vellum sleeve (below)

Keywords for D & N 2 include “pitter-patter”, “somber cricket-infested paens,” “juvenile racketeering,” “tin roof rustic,” and “beh!”
As for the presence of the mysterious sebaceous animal fleece surrounding the disc, Price says only the following:
“It was so dark that I could only see the small area illuminated by my flashlight. Through the darkness I could feel the presence of the sheep, and the anger with him.”
9 tracks, 39 minutes. Ltd. Ed. 100, screen printed by Nevada Hill

$8 postpaid U.S.
